The Rotary Club of Penticton is sending help to Philippines storm victims by way of purchasing ShelterBoxes to ship to the affected zone.
ShelterBox is a solution in disaster response that is as simple as it is effective. ShelterBox deliver the essentials a family needs to survive in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, groundsheets, water storage and filtration equipment, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items.
